About Flame Homeware

Launched in 2002, Flame Homeware is now one of the UK's fastest growing giftware importers. Our buying team visit the Far East every 6 months in search of new and exciting products as well as meeting with our manufacturers to discuss our new in-house designs.

Buying from Flame is a bit different:

  1. Agents - We have no agents so this saves you their 15% commission.
  2. Costs - We have one of the lowest overheads in the industry and we pass these savings onto you.
  3. Exclusivity - Our aim is to have one authorised stockist per town, which means we don't supply wholesalers or other middle men.
  4. Ethical - The majority of our ranges are now from ethically audited factories.
  5. Environmental - We continue to keep the packaging to a minimum on all our products.
  6. Accounts - Our credit control is firm and fair so we have little bad debt which helps keep your prices low.
  7. Delivery - Outside of show times we usually ship within 72 hours of receiving your order.
  8. Booking-in - We book in all deliveries prior to shipment.
  9. Service - We are a family run business and we try very hard to give honest, friendly and prompt service. 
  10. Independents - We are proud to supply independents. Last year we refused to supply the 3 largest supermarket chains. The largest garden centre chain and the largest card chain in the UK.
